Taking things out of context. It’s a favored political attacked used by the Establishment. In this case, Wicker’s campaign, already with their Lying Machine in full swing, have launched a frontal assault on Chris McDaniel on his supposed criticism of President Trump. On a new attack website, they took one of McDaniel’s Facebook posts and used snippets of it to make it look as though McDaniel has been harsh toward Trump and ALL of his supporters.
The quote in question: “Trump’s people have become delusional, detached from reason and sanity.” As you can see, it’s created in such a way to make it look like McDaniel was Trump-bashing.
But nothing could be further from the truth!
So allow me to provide you with the full Facebook post and provide some clarity to it.
You can see a number of good things in this post:
First of all, it was not an unreasonable post. Not in the slightest.
Senator McDaniel praised Donald Trump and did not harshly criticize him, except to say he was not a constitutional conservative, which is true. He’s not. Are we not allowed to make any criticisms of him? Even criticisms with kindness, as displayed by Senator McDaniel?
As for calling Trump supporters “delusional” and “detached from reason and sanity,” McDaniel was responding to a few of Trump’s backers who had criticized him harshly and unfairly. As you can see, he spelled out the attacks, that he is a “communist, a liberal, an establishment insider, and a RINO.”
Folks, that is delusional, unreasonable, and insane! Is there any other way to see it?
The point of this Facebook post is clear: Senator McDaniel simply defended himself against unreasonable attacks from a small group of hardcore Trump supporters and Wicker’s camp sought to use it unfairly in another dishonest attack.
